That is a really sad story.
Was Kurt Russel one of the movers?
Slightly unrelated, but I've noticed on craigslist and other places that people can't even give upright pianos away. Sort of like aquariums. "Please take this!" Nobody wants to move them.
A co-worker of mine was moving his mom's upright piano from her house over to his, which was maybe 1/4 mile down the same road. He had it on a trailer and noticed that the trailer started wobbling.... then the piano tipped over, hit the road surface, and literally "exploded". I think that was due to the string tension thing that the above article mentioned.
Sad stories. Must have been a lot of force involved. A 'friend' of mine once crashed his car into a barn where a bar piano was being kept. Piano was alright, but the car sure wasn't!
Very sad indeed.
Moving a piano wrecked me!
I gave myself a hernia moving a friends piano onto an elevator, about 10 years ago.
I got it fixed.
That'll buff right out.
My old man is a television repairman, he's got this ultimate set of tools. I can fix it.
My first wife was a concert pianist. She told me that dreaming about performing and the piano starts to slide off the stage. I think it is a common dream among pianists.
Uff, that’s awful.
I was responsible for setting up classical piano recitals in college. Transferring a full sized grand piano from the mobile piano riser to the stage was always stressful.
One time I had to push a professor’s freaking virginal across campus after an ice storm had covered the sidewalks in glare ice. That damn thing felt like it was constructed of balsa wood. I didn’t even wanna know how much it was worth.
My wife is a pianist and she has played on a Fazioli. They are a truly special pianos. This is a very sad story on so many levels.
A bunch of us have to move a grand piano to different locations on the floor of our county performance auditorium during set-ups. These are beasts.
gotta be a chance that those piano movers were moonlighting from their regular gig as baggage handlers for United Airlines. . .
Peace - Deeve
There was an old upright in our basement - I thought about restoring it, but after researching it online, determined people are paying to get rid of ones in better condition. I 'disassembled' it and the iron harp is in our garden with tomatoes growing on it, the rest went to the dump or the firepit.
Laurel and Hardy
When I purchased our current house, I went walking around in the wooded part of the yard and stumbled across a shallow grave containing the iron "harp" piece of an upright piano. My only guess is they burned the rest of it in a fire pit.
I have this dream where I'm playing guitar and the neck goes all flaccid and floppy. We've all had that dream, right? Right!?!
